Global Industrial Catalyst Market to Reach US$ 32.9 Billion by 2032, Supported by the Increasing Demand for Petroleum-based Products

May 17, 2022 | Chemical & Materials

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Industrial Catalyst Market Report by Type (Heterogeneous Catalysts, Homogeneous Catalysts, Biocatalysts), Raw Material (Mixed, Oxide, Metallic, Sulfide, Organometallic), Application (Petroleum Refinery, Chemical Synthesis, Petrochemicals, and Others), and Region 2024-2032,” finds that the global industrial catalyst market size reached US$ 23.6 Billion in 2023. Industrial catalyst refers to compounds that are employed in large quantities to modify, facilitate, and speed up chemical reactions at the required temperature without undergoing any physical or chemical changes during the process. It assists in enhancing air quality by controlling emissions, mitigating volatile organic compounds (VOCs), producing improved oil fractions, including biodiesel, natural gas and propane, and synthesizing active compounds and intermediates. Apart from this, an industrial catalyst is efficient, eco-friendly, and safe, on account of which it is extensively used in polymer catalysis, petroleum refining, petrochemical formulation, and organic synthesis.

Global Industrial Catalyst Market Trends:

With the rapid expansion in the petroleum industry, there has been an increasing establishment of petrol refining capacities and the need for various chemical products and eco-friendly fuels. This, in turn, has facilitated the widespread adoption of industrial catalysts for improving product yield, while inhibiting the waste generated during manufacturing processes, which represents one of the key factors driving the market. In line with this, rising environmental concerns have prompted governments of various countries to promote the uptake of industrial catalysts for manufacturing catalytic converters, which is acting as another growth-inducing factor. These devices are later incorporated into automobiles to mitigate harmful chemicals and pollution generated from car emissions. Additionally, the refining of multiple petrochemicals and chemicals, including methanol and polyolefins, by manufacturers for designing petroleum-based products has fueled the demand for industrial catalysts, which, in return, is contributing to the market growth. Moreover, the introduction of nano-catalysts that assist in enhancing catalytic procedures in the pharmaceutical and food and beverage (F&B) sectors are propelling the market growth. Apart from this, strategic collaborations amongst key players and the significant investments in research and development (R&D) activities to enhance catalysts efficiency, while reducing its operational costs are creating a positive outlook for the market. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 32.9 Billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 3.6% during 2024-2032.
